Republican lawmakers order audit of WI’s election system

Republican state lawmakers have ordered an audit of the way elections are administered in Wisconsin, a move Democrats warn could feed conspiracy theories and cast doubt on future elections. GOP lawmakers who run the Legislature’s audit committee voted to conduct the review Thursday. Wisconsin’s nonpartisan Legislative Audit Bureau will conduct the study. The audit will look at how the Wisconsin Elections Commission and local clerks comply with election laws. It will also study the use of electronic voting machines, and how complaints about the general election have been handled.
